A community-wide cycle network

GET ON YER BIKE!!

I would love to see the introduction of a safe, well marked network of cycle paths covering our entire community and linking Southgate, Pennard, Parkmill and Kittle (hopefully eventually linking us to the Swansea Bay cycle path). I'd like this to be accompanied by a community-wide 20mph speed limit at school commuting times. This would allow our children to cycle to school safely, as well as to friends' houses, recreational areas and existing bridleways.

We would be a flagship Welsh community for promoting the health and wellbeing of an entire generation of village children in this way, as well as improving the natural environment by reducing vehicle and noise pollution at school run times.

Imagine a community where cars drive really slowly in the morning and everyone is out on their bikes! It would be fab!

Pennard Craft Co-Op
A project is in its early stages in Pennard to creat a space where local crafters can come together to sell their gorgeous goods while raising funds for Pennard Primary School. The idea is that a proportion of profits from the sale of the craft items will be donated to the school to help improve resources and facilities for the local children. The project is looking for volunteers to help man the shop (even an hour here or there would be great) and any crafty people looking for a great opportunity.

2 Minute Coast Clean
A scheme similar to the 2 minute beach clean operating in other parts of England and Wales, including Pembrokeshire (http://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/news/15377168.Cleaning_up_the_seaside_with__2MinuteBeachClean/) but extended to include the whole ward not just the beach.
The idea is to approach local businesses and organisations to look after a board filled with supplies to carry out a 2 minute clean-up.
You would be able to take a litter picker and a carrier from the board, go off on your walk and collect as much litter in 2 minutes as you can.
We would then encourage you to take a picture of the litter you've collected and upload it to the Community Council Facebook or Twitter pages before disposing of it in a bin and returning the empty bag and litter picker to the board for others to take part.

Plastic-Free Pennard
We need volunteers to work with local businesses and organisations to encourage commitment from them to move towards a plastic-free community. This could be one small change, offering alternatives to single-use plastic or a bigger effort, it's the commitment that's important. Businesses and organisations who commit to the scheme will be rewarded with a window sticker alerting the community and visitors to the area of their pledge for change. If you think you could help, even if it's only with one business or organisation, please pledge your support here. Thank you

I pledge to ask businesses and organisations within Pennard Ward to commit to reducing their use of single-use plastic with the aim of creating a Plastic-Free Pennard.
Mae gan yr adnodd hwn 3 o {targed} volunteers ac mae'n 75% cyflawn.
The Environment Committee of Pennard Community Council have agreed unanimously to support the Plastic-Free Pennard initiative. Councillors will work with volunteers from the community to encourage local businesses and organisations to commit to moving away from single-use plastic within the ward and fund any supporting resources from the Environmental Projects budget (subject to remaining within the set budget).

We have had great success in Pennard Ward and have planted a beautiful Silver Birch to commemorate 50 years since the passing of Vernon Watkins and 50 years since Pennard Primary School and Library were opened.

Local company, Gower Unearthed, work tirelessly raising awareness of Gower myths, legends and history. They have been awarded funding to bring Vernon Watkins and his work to life for the 50th anniversary and have run some great initiatives across Swansea and Gower.

I met with Charlotte and Helen of Gower Unearthed to discuss the Swansea Rural Community Voice Project and how it could work for them. We discussed their current and future projects and during our conversations, one of us suggested that planting a tree for Vernon would be a lovely way to mark this special anniversary.

 Without further discussions, the idea was uploaded to VocalEyes into Pennard Ward, was rated and debated by Pennard residents and by the end of the month was top of the list of priorities for the ward.

 It was during this time, we spoke to residents about the idea  of planting a tree and discovered the Primary School and Library were both also celebrating a 50th anniversary. With all the crossover links between Vernon’s poetry, children, learning, books and literacy, the idea morphed into a joint celebration.

 

We approached the Primary school to find out what they thought about a tree to celebrate their special anniversary, also recognizing the Library and Vernon Watkins, and were delighted by the response.

Charlotte and Helen both wanted to help the school give the children a better understanding of Vernon Watkins and so organized sessions at the school; including poetry walks and sessions writing poetry taking inspiration from nature and the Pennard area.

 The children have also worked with a local artist to produce a “Poetry-Tree” to showcase their work. This will form part of a display to be showcased around Swansea as a finale to the Vernon Watkins Project.

The tree will be accompanied by a memorial stone and information board in the coming months. These will be a fitting memorial to Pennard’s most famous poet which we hope will eventually form part of a Vernon Watkins Trail within the ward, encouraging residents to learn more about Vernon and encouraging visitors from further afield who want to find out more. 

The stone and board will be funded by donations from a collaboration of different organizations including The Gower Landscape Partnership, The Gower Society, Pennard Community Council, VocalEyes and fundraising from the local community. This is an example of genuine community collaboration, individuals and organizations working together to achieve a priority idea that had come from the residents within the community.

This story has been shared by the South Wales Evening Post and is available on the Welsh Government website: http://gov.wales/topics/environmentcountryside/farmingandcountryside/cap/wales-rural-network/news/59...

Looking forward to helping Pennard residents achieve many more of their priorities in the coming months!

What a lovely warm welcome we received from the lovely ladies at Pennard library, the tea and coffee were flowing, a most generous member of the community had donated a fabulous home made cake to the event and members of the community arrived to communicate - ticking all our boxes!

I was joined by members of the community who were already using VocalEyes.org, those who had been online and felt they wanted some support to use it and also people who were interested in finding out more - we also roped in unsuspecting visitors to the library. 

We had a great morning, with people registering for the first time and getting involved, rating and debating ideas already being discussed and inputting excellent ideas of their own. We also had very interesting conversations around the ideas on the platform and ways to make them become a reality.

Great stuff Penard! See you in Monday January 29th at 10am for our next Coffee, Cake & Communicate!
